Splashing/bubbling

The most splashing or bubbling I ever encountered was in the first one or two bottles while the racking tube and filler were filling with the beer. Try to fill the line with water and to discard the first water/beer you bottle. This may help since the air wont be present.

Hose clamp

Try a hose clamp so you can adjust your flow rate as well. An alternative to using water to fill the line from above would be to let the line fill with beer and dislodging bubbles before ever filling the first bottle. Also, set the bottles aside that you're consered and consume them first :-)
